"Slice of life" is basically just a wildly abused blanket term for anything that isn't an action show. It's been like that for quite a while now.

Adam Jones
Adam Jones

this... what a masterpiece
i love it because it's a secure blanket for me, pure escapism

Charles James
Charles James

In the past it's been used for anything that can't be categorized as something else, like NNB. Shows devoid of drama, comedy not being the main focus, no romance stuff, generally slow paced, etc.
At least as far as I know.

Charles Walker

I wish I can watch the Pin Pons for the first time again. Unironically my favorite show of 2015.

I don't understand what you're talking about.

Jacob Martinez
Jacob Martinez

Not really. A slice of someone's life would inherently include all the mundane aspects of their life, which would rule things out like Mushishi but include more fantasy such as Aria.

A number of dramas include mundane aspects of life as well. Hanasaku Iroha did have quite a bit of drama but it also focused a lot on the mundane parts and the problems that can arise from running an inn. However I wouldn't say something like Yahari is a SoL since it was nothing but drama attempting to keep the viewer on the edge of their seat (i.e. a lot of plot focus).

That's just my personal categorization though. I see genres as a series of tick boxes instead of the single defining trait that encompasses an entire show.

Levi Sanchez
Levi Sanchez

I'm watching older anime. I just finished Black Lagoon, I've downloaded a couple of movies, and I'm watching Kare Kano and Mirai Shounen Conan. It's good that there's only shitty shows this season, because then I can finally watch some real animes.

Leo Mitchell

Not really. What did you like the most about NNB ? The girls ? Rural setting ? It's a nice show but there are better ones out there I guess

Carson James

I lived in the sticks for half a year about a year ago. It was nothing like my Non Non Biyori.

Then again I worked my ass to death, so I guess that kind of ruined it.

"Cute girls doing cute things" is the only genre that anime/manga do better than all other media. This includes mecha (first Transformers movie).

Why the fuck would I want to watch each and every SOL every season?
Tanaka and Witch more than filled my yearly quota.

Blake Cook
Blake Cook

"Cute girls doing cute things" is the only genre that anime/manga do better than all other media.
Mainly because CDGCT is a mediocre genre, that can exist only because of idealized, cute(obviously) girls. Just because drama is better in the movies or books, it doesn't stop it from being better than CDCGT.

But it is. Viewers who prefer SoL have a higher powerlevel than viewers who prefer any other anime genre, and it's not even close.

William Ross
William Ross

Coming from a big fan of the genre, the majority of great slices of life are extremely entry level, easy to get into / watch, very popular, etc. Maybe we have different definitions of powerlevel?

Adrian Williams
Adrian Williams

Nope. Experimental shorts, and things that aren't listed as anime because of not being professional works have highest powerlevel.

Stages Of An Anime Fan

Stage 1: Is introduced to a popular, entry-level anime film such as Akira or Ghost in the Shell by a friend. Proceeds to explore the most famous anime films such as the above, Ghibli movies, etc.

Stage 2: Discovers shonen series, likely Bleach on Adult Swim. Briefly becomes an IRL version of Rikka from Chuunibyou. Does not yet understand why Cred Forums trolls shonenshit threads. Will hate self for the rest of his natural life for this brief phase.

Stage 3: Mature / deepfag phase. Once he begins to realize shonenshit is shit, begins to seek out “deep” and critically acclaimed anime such as Tatami Galaxy, Evangelion, Lain, etc. Starts debating the meaning of these anime on Cred Forums, as well as starts trolling shonenshit threads, suddenly feeling superior to the plebes in said threads.

Stage 4: Moefag, the final phase. Decides to try a moe series which Cred Forums seems to love, such as Aria, or more recently Non Non Biyori, etc… justifying it to self as for “purely academic reasons,” e.g. so they can troll or shittalk these series with an informed viewpoint. Ends up discovering that nothing is more peaceful, relaxing, and enjoyable than watching cute girls doing cute things. Ends up realizing that all “deep and mature” anime are actually pretentious bullshit.

Lucky Star is SoL
Okay, now you're just baiting

"Slice of life" is basically just a wildly abused blanket term for anything that isn't an action show. It's been like that for quite a while now.
Slice of Life has existed as a literary genre for over 120 years. Just because a bunch of kids recently started misusing it on a few anime forums, doesn't legitimize the change in definition.
